Four young women from UNCG are making their mark on the future of fashion. Each won a $5,000 scholarship in the annual YMA Fashion Scholarship Fund (FSF) competition. Winners were announced Jan. 10 during the FSF awards gala at New York’s posh Waldorf-Astoria Hotel.
2012 FSF scholarships went to Victoria Kim, studying apparel design; and to Joanna Barrat, Lina Helgeson, and Katherine Poindexter, all studying retailing and consumer studies. The women, all CARS (Consumer Apparel and Retail Studies) students, also received summer internships with industry leaders.
CARS is housed in the Bryan School of Business and Economics.
